HDMI Cord

Is there really any difference between the 20.00 dollar cord vs. the 99.99 dollar or more? A cord is a cord right?

Slightly older, but still valid, opinions: http://club.cdfreaks.com/f147/hdmi-cables-brand-differences-233558/

Thanks Albert. The length I will need is 3 feet or less.


#4

For under 1 meter there is “generally” no difference between a cheap and expensive cable.

THe longer the distance the more need there is for a quality cable.


#5

If you buy these cables from places like “www.monoprice.com” then you pay only %10 of the price if you buying them from “BB, CC or CUSA”.


#6

Over short runs the only real difference between the 20.00 and 99.99 cable is that you will be 79.99 out of pocket buying the expensive one.


#7

I have shorts and long HDMI cables from monoprice.com. The longest I tried is 35 ft (DVI to HDMI) and it works fine.


#8

I just ordered and received the 15ft 15HD SVGA/SVGA CL2 compliance cable from monoprice.com for $7.6 + $4.8(shipping) for connecting my laptop or even destop to my 40" Samsung Plasma TV.


#9

Thanks all I went with a 6 footer and went with the gold plated as well as the cord saying HDMI on the ends too.


#10

HDMI is digital, digital signal either gets there or not.

signal can’t get weaker or degrade


#11

Any signal regardless digital or analog reduces by many factor (e.g. Inductance, Resistance &… of the wire or cable).

The real question is there a difference between the $3.89 cord and the $10. LOL

Monoprice rules and I saw one at GOTAPEX.com dirt cheap.

Yo-

Two very important things-

Buy the correct version (i.e. 1.1, 1.2 or 1.3) that matches the highest spec of your equipment - to insure the best transmission of both video AND audio-

Buy only as long a [B][I]cable[/I][/B] (it is NOT a freakin’ [B][I]cord[/I][/B]) as you need-
